Review: Buen Amigo Tequila Blanco

buen amigo blanco tequilaIs Buen Amigo a good friend, as its name would imply? Let’s find out, shall we?

An unusual citrus nose is immediately evident on this blanco tequila, which is apparently a mixto tequila despite one of its reposado big brother versions being a 100% agave version.

Pungent and charcoal-like, Buen Amigo’s hard-edged nose gives way to a bit smoother body than you might expect, with a clean, lime-finished palate and a bit of a boozy, alcoholic finish (though at 80 proof, it’s no different than other tequilas in the alcohol content department).

Ultimately rather plain, this is a fair choice for a tequila if you’re buying in bulk and don’t need a 100% agave spirit. Connoisseurs will want to look elsewhere.

80 proof.
